Here in the Midwest it is still pretty chilly. So chilly indeed that one could make practical use of a Christmas gift even if it was say, four months late.
I made these mitts for my friend Tara as a belated Christmas gift. Knit flat you seem these suckers up the side leaving a gap for your thumb to fit. Throw some cute buttons on (fabric covered of course!) and you've got yourself an adorable set of hand warmers.
I know that Tara appreciates grey and yellow together almost as much as I do, so I couldn't resit popping a cute little bee covered fabric button on each of them.
Hopefully you'll be much smarter than I was and actually make these in a reasonable amount of time for someone to use them. I can't count on an April snow storm to save my late Christmas gift giving behind every time.
